William Andrew is Shúhtaot'ı̨nę. He has lived in Tulı́t'a all his life, and has good memories of travels on Begáádǝ (Keele River) - including a trip with well known Shúhtaot'ı̨nę leaders Gabe Etchinelle and Paul Wright in 1997. He also made annual trips with his family to K'áalǫ (Willow Lake) for the spring goose and duck hunt. After about four years working on oil rigs, he became a heavy equipment operator in Norman Wells. He also has experience working at the Tulı́t'a gas bar and Northern store where he rose to the position of Head Cashier. In 2015 he completed the five week Environmental Monitor training program at Aurora College in Fort Smith. He also participated in a Cross-Cultural Research Camp at Sans Sault Rapids that same year. He is committed to supporting strong Dene and Métis stewardship in his family's mountain homeland, and looks forward to introducing his son Leland to the mountains!
